NRA Women congratulates International Skeet shooter and Team Winchester member Dania Vizzi, who claimed Gold at the ISSF World Cup in famed Lonato, Italy. The range in Lonato is legendary for attracting the world’s best talent and serving as a challenging venue for shooters at the top of their game. The gold medal win for Vizzi adds to her momentum moving into the Spring 2024 selection match, which will decide who will represent the United States at the Paris Olympics.  

Vizzi earned a spot at the Italy World Cup based on her Silver medal finish at the 2023 Spring Selection competition. She shot consistent all week posting a 121/125 in qualifying, which moved her into the 6th position in the shootoff. From there, Vizzi shot 54 more targets to best the 5 other competitors and secure victory for the United States. 

“Dania continues to demonstrate why she is one of the best shooters in the world right now,” said Jason Gilbertson, director of marketing for Winchester. “It’s exciting to watch her compete at an extremely high level and we wish her the best of luck at the Olympic Trials in Tucson next spring.”

Dania has been a long-time member of Team Winchester representing The American Legend at international skeet competitions around the globe, but also serving as a role-model and representative within the shooting sports. Vizzi’s ammunition of choice is symbol AANL129, a unique load designed specifically to meet ISSF (International Shooting Sports Federation) rules. The 24 gram payload of 9-shot is traveling at 1325 feet per second and carries the legendary shot uniformity and dependability of Winchester AA shotshells.
